3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at MWBBF. Pours a hazy gold color with a big off-white head. Aroma of sweet and bready malts, dried apricots, earth, candi sugar, straw, and mild spice. The flavor follows the same lines and has just a wee bit of lemon citrus. Light-medium bodied, with a bready mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Pretty good saison, one of the better Buffalo offerings.
